I got my hands on a Beautiful Georgetown Pottery scuttle after wanting one for years and just gave it a test run. I got a G12 which is large enough to whip later in, but the lather got very foamy for me when whipping up my shaving soap. I guess if the point of the scuttle is just to keep the brush warm, does anyone just face or palm lather , then drop the brush in? Or do you simply make it a point to drop it in the bowl? Is there an advantage as far as warmth if you lather in the bowl?
